Configuring laptop interfaces The Debian Way?
I'm trying to set up a laptop with both wired and wireless interfaces.
Apart from difficulties in getting the wireless to work I'm a bit
surprised by the way even the wired setup works. If I boot up the laptop
when the wired ethernet is disconnected it spends quite a long time
looking for a DHCP server! Surely this can't be correct behaviour?
I'd expect default bootup behaviour to be
IF wired ethernet link == up
THEN try DHCP
ELSE try wireless ...
Am I missing something?
